Dr. Leila El Abbadi,
Associate Professor, Ibn Tofail University, Morocco


Since the publication of the main idea of the industry 4.0 in 2011, it presents a new challenge for industrial companies that desire to move to the fourth stage and take advantage from the fourth industrial revolution technologies.

Based mainly on cyber physical systems (CPS), internet of things (IOT), internet of services, the industry 4.0 allows to the industrial companies to be more competitive, more efficient and more flexible. These advanced information technologies and automation can be used at the shop floor as well as the decision level. Consequently, the manufacturing processes as well as the operational management tools must be adapted to the industry 4.0 context.

The objective of this special session is to discuss new contributions as well as the scientific challenges related to the application/ integration of industry 4.0 technologies in the manufacturing environment, especially in the operations management and manufacturing processes.


Suitable topics include -but are not limited to- the following:

  • Reliability and maintenance 4.0
  • Supply chain and Logistics 4.0
  • Operational excellence 4.0: quality, lean, …
  • Proactive and predictive management in manufacturing
  • integrated production planning and control
  • production optimization
  • Advanced Manufacturing
